zeborah: Zebra with stripes falling off (stress and confusion)
So I was sleeping badly anyway due to my nose having a tendency to block. (Winter, new gas fire drying it up, something like that.)

Then I dreamed I was back in Korea taking a taxi to our apartment, and accidentally got it to drop us off in the wrong apartment block. So we were walking through to get to our own, and came around a corner to where just a few fragments of brick walls remained - fragments of murals painted on what had been the inside - and I realised it was the church I'd last visited there before the quakes, and even though I'd only been there the once it hit me really hard. I had my hand over my nose and mouth just sobbing and sobbing and sobbing...

...and woke up sobbing and sobbing and sobbing, and got the waterworks going too, and then suddenly I thought: Wait, am I actually emotionally affected here or was this just a breathing problem? And I took one deep breath to stop the sobbing and then I was absolutely fine.

So that was anticlimactic; and then my alarm went off before I could get back to sleep. Le sigh. OTOH I've just had too full snowdays off work so I suppose I can't complain too much about going in to work for today.

Oh look! I made you a bonus haiku thing:

I thought, "Wait for spring
to see the cherry blossom," but
here are snow and dawn.

So again last night Boots went to sleep on my beanbag as soon as I'd abandoned it, and in the wee hours walked on my hair until I let her in the bed with me.

While pondering this over lunch today it belatedly occurred to me that it has actually been quite cold these last days. My beanbag when I've been sitting on it for several hours must be the second-warmest thing in the house -- preferable to the warmest thing (me in my electric-blanket-toasted bed, spoiled for the cat by my heavy bedcovers) for the five or six hours it apparently takes the living room and beanbag to cool down to an uncomfortable temperature.

Duh.

(Now wondering whether and how new beans in the beanbag would affect its thermodynamic behaviour. Also trying to resist the temptation to graph overnight low temperatures against the length of time it takes Boots to climb into bed with me.)
